We visited Luxor on a guided tour - sharing information about how it was

Submitted by Traveling girl on Fri, 09/22/2023 - 00:00

Egypt is a country with an ancient history, with many world-famous attractions. We really wanted to see at least something during our holiday in Egypt.

We chose Hurghada as our autumn holiday destination. The most famous places in Egypt for history buffs are (probably) Luxor and Giza (Egyptian pyramids).

The distance from Hurghada to Luxor is approximately 180 miles (290 kilometers).
The distance from Hurghada to Cairo (where the Pyramids of Giza are located) is 290 miles (470 kilometers).

Anyone who travels a lot in North-West Russia sooner or later has an idea to visit the island of Valaam.
Valaam Island was visited in different years, for example, by:
Emperors Alexander I and Alexander II.
Artists I. I. Shishkin, A. and I. Kuindzhi.
Writers N. S. Leskov, F. I. Tyutchev and Alexander Dumas-father.
Composers P.I.Tchaikovsky and A.K. Glazunov.
Scientists M. N. Miklouho-Maclay and D. I. Mendeleev.
This spring I also made a short cruise to Valaam Island. Read on the blog.

To Stockholm from St. Petersburg via Helsinki

Submitted by Visit Plus on Wed, 10/30/2019 - 21:50

What is the best mode of transport to get to Stockholm? Airplane? A train? In my opinion, it is best to travel by sea, by ferry or by cruise ship. A trip on a comfortable boat is a pleasure in itself. I visited Stockholm recently by ferry.

I visited Stockholm for the first time many years ago. A good reason to make a trip to the capital of Sweden once again appeared with me recently. What is the reason? Cheap ferry tickets.
